    You can. View item, select address, brings you to map, press flag, select directions. Or navigate.

    Could it be that you have that info in the notes field rather than in the location field?

    yes, that would be the case, For this instance,

    it is a event for a trip to kentucky next week
    the notes field has the hotel and car rental info and the job site in the notes. But I can't select anything in the notes section.

    edit: the phone number in the notes section is underlined on one note but not the other, but the address isn't

    I have it in both where and notes field and both are underlined. Droid recognizes addresses and phone. Numbers.

    Make sure you have spaces where they belong.

    ok, so how is your numbers and address formated
    the phone is like 18593896800 and is underlined

    the address is

    1000 export Street
    Lexington KY 40504

    but the address is not underlined, how is it formated for you?

    may need a comma after Lexington.

    no luck with the comma, and no luck with it all on one line... Any other thoughts, I appreciate the help

    I did a few tests and in every case the address became a clickable link in the notes field of the calendar entry... UNTIL... I changed the first letter of the street name to lower case. Try capitalizing the street name and see if it helps.

    Ok so doing the street name didn't do it. UNTIL I edited it using calendar online instead of on the phone I looked up in Google maps the address and entered

    1000 Export Street
    Lexington, KY 40504

    and now it works. This is odd, It seems as if every time its done this has been with events from my outlook at work that syncs to Google calendar, then it does this. odd for sure, plus the capitalization is weird as well.
